Emily Ambs

Dance Teacher

Emily has 15 years of dance training and has been sharing her love of dance as a teacher and choreographer for over a decade. Her favorite choreography credits include Joseph…Dreamcoat (Circle Theatre), The Sound of Music (Shadblow Theatre), The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Mary Poppins (Jenison High School). She has also performed in a number of musicals and concerts in the community, most recently appearing as a tap-dancing egg and Renaissance woman in the ensemble of Something Rotten.
